The ol float tube
I've had the same float tube for twenty five years. Haven't got around to buying a new one for a hundred, $130 or one for $200.
Found it hard this year finding a supplier of a new 20" truck inner tube. Had one shipped in from Ohio for $45. Will last a few years, so it is worth it.
Still use the same outer part of the float tube for 25 years.
Saved a little money on float tubes. Except for the fading outer section, it works like a new one.
